Yesterday I received the most wonderful letter from my friend Luise. She had included a message from Jens Lekman and it made a dreary day much better. Tomorrow I'll get on a train to visit her in Berlin, listen to indiepop and hopefully have a good time.
Today I started reading Kazuo Ishiguro's "Never Let Me Go", but had to stop immediately because it made me physically sick. This is so annoying, I don't even know what to say. I really want to read this book, but I get dizzy every time I see the word "donor" - I can guess what it's all about even though I haven't read anything about the book and its plot. How can I stop myself from being so squeamish? Other books I couldn't read because it was either that or throwing up:
Thomas Mann - The Magic Mountain
Albert Camus - The Plague
Jeffrey Eugenides - Virgin Suicides
